walhalla-vinter_festivalInspired by the Swedish tradition of celebrating winter, Walhalla's Vinter Ljusfest (winter light festival) is a treat for the senses. With lights, images and sound, the usually pitch-dark town is lit up – and visitors are loving it.

To enjoy the Vinter Ljusfest to the fullest, experience the night train, wander through the town, watch the historic images on the band rotunda, head down the old goldmine for a special night tour. If you're feeling especially brave, you can also take the town's ghost tour!

Essential Info:

Take the Walhalla Goldfields Railway tour and see the magic of fairy lights along the cliffs and beautiful lights in the trees as you enjoy the warmth of a hot water bottle.
